Don't just take the PMP® exam: Pass it, the first time!
Less than 50% of PMP exam candidates actually pass the exam on their first attempt. But one group passes at an amazing 80+% rate: the students of Dr. Rudd McGary, PMP. McGary has spent years teaching the PMP certification exam and helping professional project managers prepare for it. Now, he's integrated all of these techniques and knowledge to assist you in one book: Passing the PMP Exam.
